The Rolling Stones lyrics - Album: Let It Bleed [1969]

Gimme Shelter

- Jagger/Richards

Oh, a storm is threat'ning

My very life today.

If I don't get some shelter

Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away.

War, children, it's just a shot away

It's just a shot away.

War, children, it's just a shot away

It's just a shot away.

Ooh, see the fire sweepin'

Our very street today.

Burns like a red coal carpet

Mad bull lost its way.

War, children, it's just a shot away

It's just a shot away.

War, children, it's just a shot away

It's just a shot away.

The floods is threat'ning

My very life today.

Gimme, gimme shelter

Or I'm gonna fade away.

War, children, it's just a shot away

It's just a shot away

It's just a shot away

It's just a shot away

It's just a shot away

I tell you love, sister, it's just a kiss away

It's just a kiss away

It's just a kiss away

It's just a kiss away

It's just a kiss away

Kiss away, kiss away.

Love In Vain


- Trad arr. Jagger/Richards

Well I followed her to the station

With a suitcase in my hand

Yeah, I followed her to the station

With a suitcase in my hand

Lord, its hard to tell hard to tell

When all your love's in vain

When the train come in the station

I looked her in the eye

Yeah the train it come in the station

And I looked her in the eye

Whoa, I felt so sad so lonesome

That I could not help but cry

When the train left the station

It had two lights on behind

Yeah, the train it left the station I said

It had two lights on behind

ohhh, the blue light was my baby

and the red light was my mind

I'm gonna tell ya, all my love's

all my love's in vain

Country Honk


- Jagger/Richards

Sittin' in a bar tippling a jar in Jackson

And on the street the summer sun it shines

There's many a bar-room queen

I've had in Jackson

But I just can't seem to drink you off my mind

It's those Honky-Tonk women

Gimme, gimme, gimme those Honky-Tonk blues

I laid a divorcee in New York City

I had to put up some kind of a fight

The Lady she all dressed me up in roses

She blew my nose and then she blew my mind

It's those Honky-Tonk women

Gimme, gimme, gimme those Honky-Tonk blues

It's those Honky-Tonk women

Gimme, gimme, gimme those Honky-Tonk blues

It's those Honky-Tonk women

Gimme, gimme, gimme those Honky-Tonk blues

It's those Honky-Tonk women

Gimme, gimme, gimme those Honky-Tonk blues

Live With Me


- Jagger/Ruchards

I got nasty habits, I take tea at three

Yes and the meat I eat for dinner

Must be hung up for a week

My best friend he shoots water rats,

And feeds them to his geese

Doncha think there's a place for you

In between the sheets?

Come now, honey,

we can build a place for three

Come on now honey,

doncha wanna live with me?

There's a score of hair-brained children

They're all locked in the nursery

They got earphone heads they got dirty necks

They're so 20th century

Well they cue up for the bathroom

'round about 7:35

Doncha think we need a womans touch to make it come alive??

You'd look good pram pushing,

down the high street

Come on now honey,

doncha wanna live with me?

Oh, the servants they're so helpful, dear

The cook she is a whore

Yes, The butler has a place for her

behind the pantry door

The maid, she's French, She's got no sense

She's from the Crazy Horse

When she strips, the chauffeur flips

The footman's eyes be crossed

Oh, don'cha think there's a place for us,

right across the street

Don'cha think there's a place for you,

in between the sheets

Let It Bleed


- Jagger/Richards

Well, we all need someone we can lean on

And if you want it, you can lean on me

Yeah, we all need someone we can lean on

And if you want it, you can lean on me

She said my breasts, they will always be open

Baby, you can rest your weary head right on me

And there will always be a space in my parking lot

When you need a little coke and sympathy

Yeah, we all need someone we can dream on

And if you want to, you can dream on me

Yeah, We all need someone we can cream on

And if you want to, you can cream on me

I was dreaming of a steel guitar engagement

When you drank my health in scented Jasmine Tea

And then she knifed me in my dirty filthy basement

With that jaded, faded, junky nurse (Oh what pleasant company)

We all need someone we can feed on

And if you want to, you can feed on me

Take my arms, take my legs, oh baby don't you take my head

We all need someone we can feed on

And if you want to, you can feed on me

We all need someone we can feed on

And if you want to, you can feed on me

Bleed alright, bleed alright, bleed alright, you can bleed all over

me

Bleed alright, bleed alright, you can be my rider, you can cum all

over me

Bleed alright, bleed alright, bleed alright, you can bleed all over

me

Bleed alright, bleed alright, you can be my rider, you can cum all

over me

Midnight Rambler


- Jagger/Richards

Did you hear about the midnight rambler

everybody got to go

Did you hear about the midnight rambler

The one that shut the kitchen door

He don't give a hoot of warning

wrapped up in a black cat cloak

He don't go in the light of the morning

He split the time the cockrel crows

Talkin' about the midnight gambler

The one you never seen before

Talkin' about the midnight gambler

Did you see him jump the garden wall

Sighin down the wind so sad

Listen and you'll hear him moan

Talkin' about the midnight gambler

everybody got to go

Did you hear about the midnight rambler

Well, honey, it's no Rock'n'Roll show

Well, I'm talkin' about the midnight gambler

Yeah, the one you've never seen before

Did you hear about the midnight Rambler

He'll leave his footprints up and down your hall

And did you hear about the midnight gambler

And did you see me make my midnight call

And if you ever catch the midnight rambler

I'll steal your mistress from under your nose

Well, go easy with your cold fandango

I'll stick my knife right down your throat, baby

And it hurts!

You Got The Silver


- Jagger/Richards

Hey babe, what's in your eyes?

I saw them flashing like airplane lights

You fill my cup, babe, that's for sure

I must come back for a little more.

You got my heart you got my soul

You got the silver you got the gold

You got the diamonds from the mines

Well that's all right it'll buy some time.

Tell me, honey, what will I do

When I'm hungry and thirsty too

Feeling fooling (and that's for sure)

Just waiting here at your kitchen door?

Hey baby, what's in your eyes

Is that the diamonds from the mines

What's that laughing in your smile?

I don't care, no, I don't care

Hey babe, you got my soul

You got the silver you got the gold

A flash of love just made me blind

I don't care, no, that's no big surprise.

Monkey Man


- Jagger/Richards

I'm a fleabit peanut monkey

All my friends are junkies

That's not really true

I'm a cold Italian pizza

I could use a lemon squeezer

Whould you do?

I've been biten

I've been tossed around by every she-rat in this town

Have you, Babe?

Well, I'm just a monkey man

I'm glad you are a monkey woman too

I was bitten by a boar

I was gouged and I was gored

But I pulled on through

I am a sack of broken eggs

I always have an unmade bed

Don't you?

Well, I hope we're not too messianic

Or a trifle too satanic

We love to play the blues

And I'm just a monkey man

I'm glad you are a monkey woman too

You Can't Always Get What You Want


- Jagger/Richards

[ I saw her today at the reception, ]

[ A glass of wine in her hand. ]

[ I knew she was gonna meet her connection, ]

[ At her feet was a footloose man. ]

I saw her today at the reception,

A glass of wine in her hand.

I knew she was gonna meet her connection,

At her feet was a footloose man.

You can't always get what you want,

You can't always get what you want,

You can't always get what you want,

But if you try sometimes you just might find

You'll get what you need.

I went down to the demonstration,

To get my fair share of abuse.

Singing "we're gonna vent our frustrations,

And if we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse."

You can't always get what you want,

You can't always get what you want,

You can't always get what you want,

But if you try sometimes you might find

You'll get what you need.

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore

To get your prescription filled.

I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy,

And man, did he look pretty ill.

We decided that we would have a soda,

My favorite flavor, cherry red.

I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy,

And he said one word to me, and that was "dead,"

I said to him,

You can't always get what you want,

You can't always get what you want,

You can't always get what you want,

But if you try sometimes you just might find

You'll get what you need.

You'll get what you need--yeah, oh baby.

I saw her today at the reception,

In her glass was a bleeding man.

She was practiced at the art of deception,

Well I could tell by her bloodstained hands.

You can't always get what you want,

You can't always get what you want,

You can't always get what you want,

But if you try sometimes you just might find

You just might find

You'll get what you need.

You can't always get what you want,

You can't always get what you want,

You can't always get what you want,

But if you try sometimes you just might find

You just might find

You'll get what you need.
